Greek transgender community hopes new law will improve lives

Protesters gather outside Parliament in support of a gender identity bill, currently being debated by lawmakers, in central Athens, on Monday, Oct. 9, 2017. The banner reads in Greek “gender identity”. Greece’s powerful Orthodox Church is urging the left-led government to withdraw draft legislation, due to be voted Tuesday, that would allow free determination of gender identity, irrespective of how it was recorded at birth.
